The Handbook on Financial Aid for Education Abroad, Third Edition

Finances are often top of mind for education abroad participants, and education abroad professionals can best assist students if they understand how federal financial aid may be applied to such programs and the mechanisms employed by the financial aid office. This thoroughly revised digital download features an explanation of federal financial aid regulations related to study abroad, model practices for working with students and the financial aid office, and tips for collaborating with campus allies for the portability of federal financial aid.
